The destruction and burial of the Roman town settled on the Vesuvius slopes – Pompeii - was caused by the volcanic eruption of the 79AD. The settlement was completely covered by layers of ash and lava, destroyed in all but memory, and only the hard work of the archaeologists has allowed us to bring the ruins back to live. Your guide will lead you into the streets of the ancient town, showing you the gymnasium, the theatres, the old bakeries and the ancestor of what today would be considered a fast food restaurant. You will then see the Isis temple, the house of Menander and the magnificent baths. On your way you will even find the lupanariae - the red-light district - and will end your tour in the Forum – the central square, where politicians used to make their speeches, temples were built, and merchants sold their products. Join this small group tour and feel free to interact with your live guide asking questions and curiosities.
